Whitney Museum Annual Report Director's Letter Page 1 of 5 



DIRECTOR'S LETTER 

A great many things have happened at the Whitney Museum of American Art since 
our last five-year bulletin was published. At that time, the Museum was without its 
extraordinary Leonard & Evelyn Lauder Galleries, our administrative offices were 
still housed in our 1966 Marcel Breuer building, and the institution was being ably 
led by my visionary predecessor, David A. Ross. In 1998, in the afterglow of such 
remarkable accomplishments, it was a tremendous privilege for me to join an 
institution so wonderfully poised to reach even higher in the new century and 
millennium. 

The growth and changes we have witnessed since June of 1994 owe much to the 
hard work of a dedicated staff, to a generous and deeply committed Board of 
Trustees, and to a clear and consistent mission: to be the internationally 
acknowledged leader in collecting, interpreting, and presenting twentieth- and 
twenty-first- century American art for the benefit of a large, diverse, and engaged 
audience. As we advance this mission with an ever-growing institution, it is timely to 
reflect with pride on how far we have already come. 

Capital Campaign 

In 1994, the Whitney launched a capital campaign to realize the goals set forth in its 
Long-Range Plan. Thanks to all of our supporters, and especially to the 
extraordinary leadership and generosity of our chairman, Leonard A. Lauder, our 
campaign was highly successful. 

The Whitney's Permanent Collection is an incomparable record of twentieth-century 
American art and remains our most important asset, reflecting our history, 
patronage, and mission as the world's leading museum of American art of the last 
century and the one now underway. Our commitment to exhibiting our Permanent 
Collection-through ongoing and innovative displays balancing familiar 
masterpieces, evocative retrospectives of favorites, and works seldom encountered 
or long forgotten-is a testament to how much this collection is at our heart and soul. 

On April 4, 1998, we proudly opened our Leonard & Evelyn Lauder Galleries, giving 
us an unprecedented opportunity to promote the Whitney's institutional message. 
By enabling us to continuously show more than one hundred works reflecting the 
principal areas of our holdings, the Leonard & Evelyn Lauder Galleries fulfilled one 
of our key goals: to make the Permanent Collection more accessible to the public. It 
is no surprise that the establishment of this extraordinary resource continues to 
draw tremendous audiences and has contributed to our increased membership. 

As part of this initiative, eleven galleries dedicated to the display of our Permanent 
Collection were named in honor of some of our greatest patrons: Maurer Family 
Gallery, Adriana & Robert Mnuchin Gallery, National Committee of the Whitney 
Museum of American Art Gallery, William Randolph Hearst Foundation Gallery, 
Laurie Tisch Sussman Foundation Gallery, Faith & Philip Geier, Jr. Gallery, Joanne 
Leonhardt Cassullo Gallery, Howard & Jean Lipman Gallery, Sondra Gilman 
Gallery, and Ames Family Gallery These were most recently joined by the Mildred

Whitney Museum Annual Report Director's Letter Page 2 of 5 



and Herbert Lee Galleries, now dedicated to showing masterpieces from the 
postwar and contemporary periods of our collection. Galleries dedicated to the 
display of our renowned temporary exhibitions, as well as our library, were named 
for equally important supporters: Emily Fisher Landau Galleries, Peter Norton 
Family Galleries, Kaufman Astoria Studios Film & Video Gallery, Anne & Joel 
Ehrenkranz Gallery, Robert J. Hurst Family Gallery, and Frances Mulhall Achilles 
Library. 

The creation of the Leonard & Evelyn Lauder Galleries also helped us respond to 
the needs of a growing staff that had been working in increasingly tight quarters on 
the Museum's fifth floor. With the floor transformed to galleries, we built a new, 
integrated Administrative Annex in an adjoining brownstone on 74th Street. This 
centralized office facility allowed our different departments to be more closely 
connected, made greater teamwork possible, and enhanced the spirit of collegiality. 

Our Capital Campaign included the restoration of the granite facade of our signature 
Marcel Breuer building, which was beginning to show signs of maturity. With a fresh 
new face to help celebrate its thirtieth anniversary, the boldness and elegance of 
Breuer's design won praise from the landmarks, architecture, and historic 
preservation communities. 

In conjunction with these major undertakings, the Capital Campaign successfully 
raised our endowment and operating funds to support a period of increased activity 
and expansion. Thanks to the efforts of our staff, this monumental renovation of the 
Breuer building and the move to the Administrative Annex were carried out without 
interrupting the full scope of the Whitney's exhibitions, events, and programs. 

Exhibitions 

A series of groundbreaking exhibitions punctuated the years 1994-99. Our 1994 
Joseph Stella retrospective was the "sleeper of the year" according to The New 
York Times. The "1995 Biennial Exhibition," part of our always controversial ongoing 
series, along with "Black Male: Representations of Masculinity in Contemporary 
American Art," positioned the Whitney as a leader in the discussion and 
presentation of ideas about twentieth-century American art and culture, and testified 
to our ability to bring intellectually challenging exhibitions and publications to the 
public. 

Visitors lined up around the block for "Edward Hopper and the American 
Imagination" (1995) and were pleasantly surprised to find "Florine Stettheimer: 
Manhattan Fantastica" (1995) as well, reflecting the kind of balance that continues 
to distinguish our exhibition program Our successful "Beat Culture and the New 
America" (1995) and "Kienholz: A Retrospective"(1996) exemplified how 
thematically linked exhibitions can build an audience and enhance viewers' 
understanding of complex cultural and artistic movements. 

Our ongoing commitment to striking a balance between popular programming and 
less familiar work led to a series of artistically significant and critically acclaimed 
exhibitions "Nan Goldin: I'll Be Your Mirror" (1996) was the artist's first retrospective 
and opened to an enthusiastic public and press. "Making Mischief: Dada Invades 

http whitney.org/information/annual report/director letter.html 4/h><>. 



Whitney Museum Annual Report Director's Letter Page 3 of 5 



New York" (1996) offered a comprehensive survey of one of the twentieth century's 
most radical and influential art movements. 

Our "Views from Abroad" series (1995-97) launched an animated cross-cultural 
dialogue between American and European museums. We celebrated Richard 
Diebenkorn, one of the most important American artists of his generation, by 
mounting a major retrospective of his career (1998). The "Warhol Look: Glamour 
Style Fashion" (1997), organized by The Andy Warhol Museum, explored the 
development and diffusion of the Warhol style throughout the fashion and media 
worlds. And our critically acclaimed "Bill Viola" exhibition (1998) was the first full- 
scale survey of a video artist who is widely acknowledged as a leader in his field; it 
was also the largest exhibition ever devoted exclusively to the work of a single video 
artist. 

The highly acclaimed and widely popular Mark Rothko retrospective, organized by 
the National Gallery of Art, opened when I took up my post here in the fall of 1998. 
In the midst of this show and the opening of the critically praised Ray Johnson 
exhibition, the planning and development of "The American Century: Art & Culture 
1900-2000," which started long before I arrived, was in full swing. This year-long 
exhibition occupied the entire Museum, making the Whitney the most forceful voice 
of modern and contemporary American art in the world. Robert Hughes in Time 
magazine called it "a show that nobody interested in America and its self-image can 
afford to miss." The tremendous momentum generated by an unprecedented 
collaboration with Intel Corporation took the Whitney into the new millennium with a 
technological edge. 

Collections 

The Whitney's universal collection of American art has grown steadily in breadth 
and depth over the years. Among the numerous important works to enter our 
collection between 1994 and 1999 are Gerald Murphy's Cocktail 0927), Jay 
DeFeo's The Rose (1958-66) and Felix Gonzalez-Torres's last major work before his 
death, Untitled (America) (1 994-95)— all of which were showcased in "The American 
Century" exhibition Charels Simon, our former Trustee, generously bequeathed 
eighty major works from his collection to the Museum And we were honored to 
welcome Ad Reinhardt's Abstract Painting, Red (1952), Untitled (1954), and three 
Abstract Paintings (1960-66), thanks to the generosity of Leonard A. Lauder. 

Recognizing the ways in which our collection continues to expand, we created a 
Film and Video Committee to supplement the roster of committees already in place 
to strengthen our holdings. Also in support of our Permanent Collection, we 
undertook the completion of a new Collections Management Policy and Procedures 
manual and established a Committee on Collections to oversee the Museum's 
collecting and conservation practices. Following thorough investigation and research 
of new automated collection systems, we initiated an archive of digitized images, 
implemented new and ongoing collection inventory procedures, and made condition 
reports for every object in the collection We leased considerable square footage 
offsite to consolidate and house our rapidly growing collection, and continue to 
explore storage and care solutions for an active and evolving collection containing 
objects frequently made of unorthodox materials.

Whitney Museum Annual Report Director's Letter Page 4 of 5 



Finally, as a reaffirmation of our commitment to collecting twentieth- and twenty-first- 
century American art, forty-six works from our nineteenth-century holdings were 
deaccessioned, with the approval of our Trustees, in accordance with AAMD and 
AAM guidelines, and after meticulous evaluation by our curatorial staff, outside 
scholars, and other art professionals. In keeping with our mission, the proceeds 
from these deaccessions were used to purchase works of art that have enhanced 
our Permanent Collection. 

Programs and Services 

We have consistently sought to serve our audiences by regularly examining and 
reexamining the needs of our constituent communities. In the area of education, we 
have maintained our commitment to working with the public school system and 
strengthening the involvement of students with the Museum through a variety of 
programs and seminars. By increasing the number of our programs, we have better 
targeted specific communities, including families, young adults, senior citizens, 
teachers, and students. 

In 1997, we were proud to receive a prestigious and highly competitive $500,000 
challenge grant from Pew Charitable Trusts for our new program, "Youth Insights: 
Building an Intergenerational Dialogue on American Art and Culture," which 
continues to serve as a model for youth initiatives across the country. 

The opening of our Leonard & Evelyn Lauder Galleries provided exciting 
opportunities for the use of the Permanent Collection as a public resource, and 
allowed us to explore new approaches to education through interdisciplinary, 
multidimensional programs and materials designed to make our collection, 
exhibitions, and programs accessible to a broader audience. By partnering with 
other presenting organizations and some of the city's most important and effective 
community groups, we were able to offer unique programs and attract increasingly 
diverse audiences. Our adult programs were expanded to include such sold-out 
events as SoHo and Chelsea galleries tours, which gave participants perspective on 
the work of living artists. Onsite, we also maintained a lively environment for 
younger audiences through engaging programs and offerings. 

Book production more than quadrupled, with increased reprints and foreign editions, 
catalogues that have grown in size and complexity, and new and expanded 
publishing arrangements with both commercial and university presses-all resulting 
in substantially increased revenues and national as well as international distribution, 
with print runs ranging from 10,000 to 50,000. 

Our renowned Independent Study Program (ISP) celebrated its thirtieth anniversary 
in 1998, with scholars, artists, and alumni reflecting on the history of this illustrious 
program and contemplating its next thirty years. An Alumni Council was established, 
drawing from the more than nine hundred alumni living and working around country, 
many at leading cultural institutions, to help take this key Whitney initiative into the 
future.

In the five-year period covered by this report, we celebrated how far we had come 
and weighed our future ambitions. As we readied ourselves for much talked-about 
year 2000 compliance and provided two hundred staff with external email and 
Internet access, we could look back with pride on all we did to further our 
institutional mission. Over the years, we have consistently valued our responsibility 
to maintain and enhance the spirit of the Whitney by keeping our focus on art and 
its power to delight us and transform our lives. Thanks to remarkable curators and 
staff, we are proud of the many ways in which we have been able to serve our 
public and our membership-at present the largest in our history-through 
exhibitions, programs, and an extraordinary collection. 

With such a rich history behind us, we are confidently poised to take the Whitney 
into the twenty-first-century as the internationally acknowledged leader in collecting, 
interpreting, and presenting twentieth- and twenty-first-century American art, as the 
foremost institutional advocate of living American artists, the primary center for 
scholarship and education about American art, and a primary destination for 
residents of New York City and for visitors from across America and around the 
world.

EDUCATIONAL AND PUBLIC PROGRAMS 



The Education Department is committed to exploring new approaches to the concept 
of education and to developing interdisciplinary, multidimensional programs and 
materials. These resources are designed to make the Whitney Museum's world- 
renowned collection of American art and its comprehensive exhibition program 
accessible to a broad audience. As the Museum develops new ways to use its vast 
resources, it continues to reexamine the needs of its constituent communities. The 
Whitney recognizes multiple audiences with a range of interests and needs: students, 
teachers, community members, senior citizens, educators, artists, curators, collectors, 
scholars, critics, theorists, museum professionals, and members of and donors to the 
Museum. 

In addition to an extensive series of public programs, including lectures, symposia, 
courses, and performances, the Whitney offers a variety of programs that focus on the 
interests of elementary, middle, and high school students, educators, administrators, 
and families in New York City and the tn-state area. School programs include guided 
tours of exhibitions with museum educators, multisession projects with classes, and 
pre- and post-visit materials for students and teachers to use in the classroom. The 
Whitney also offers a series of professional staff development programs for New York 
City school teachers, including workshops, seminars, and a Summer Institute. 

The Museum is committed to offering programs for students and families outside of 
the school environment. Family Fun! workshops provide opportunities for children 
ages five to ten and their parents to explore the art on view and to work collaboratively 
on an art project. Artists and Youth: A Dialogue enables high school students to meet 
exhibiting artists. In addition, Youth Insights trams high school youths to give public 
tours of current exhibitions and build an intergenerational dialogue about twentieth- 
and twenty-first-century art and culture with children, families, senior citizens, and their 
peers. 

In 1994, the Education Department established a new program for senior citizens, who 
constitute the largest growing population in New York City. Through special courses at 
senior centers, telephone courses for homebound seniors, and interactive lectures at 
the Museum, the senior program builds on the rich life experience that the participants 
have to offer. 

In addition to providing a wide range of public and educational programs on-site, the 
Whitney offers online educational resources to local, national, and international 
audiences on its website at www.whitney.org. The Whitney's Internet-based initiatives 
are designed to extend public participation in the Museum's exhibitions and provide 
distance-learning opportunities. The Whitney's web resources focus on exploring how 
new information technologies can be used to enhance the ways in which Museum 
visitors and Internet audiences learn about works of art. Teachers, students, and 
families can access information about works of art in the Whitney's exhibitions, enjoy 
interactive online features and activities, and explore an array of suggested curricula 
and art projects.

REPORT OF INDEPENDENT ACCOUNTANTS: 

REGARDING THE WHITNEY MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ART'S FINANCIAL 
STATEMENTS FOR THE YEAR ENDING JUNE 30, 1999, WITH 
SUMMARIZED COMPARATIVE INFORMATION FOR THE YEAR ENDING 
JUNE 30. 19S8 

In our opinion, the accompanying balance sheet and the related statement of activities and 
statement of cash flows present fairly, in all material respects, the financial position of the 
Whitney Museum of American Art ("the Museum") at June 30, 1999, and the changes in its 
net assets and its cash flows for the year then ended, in conformity with generally 
accepted accounting principles These financial statements are the responsibility of the 
Museum's management; our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial 
statements based on our audit. The prior year summarized comparative information has 
been derived from the Museum's fiscal 1998 financial statements; and in our report dated 
November 6. 1998. we expressed an unqualified opinion on those financial statements 
We conducted our audit in accordance with generally accepted auditing standards which 
require that we plan and perform our audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether 
the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on 
a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements, 
assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by management 
and evaluating the overall financial statement presentation We believe that our audit 
provides a reasonable basis for the opinion expressed above

1 . Summary of Significant Accounting Policies The Whitney Museum of American Art (the 
"Museum") was founded in 1930 by Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney and is dedicated to 
collecting, preserving, interpreting, and exhibiting American art. The Museum serves a 
wide variety of audiences from its New York City location. The Museum also operates two 
corporate sponsored branch locations, one in New York City and the other in Connecticut. 

The financial statements of the Museum have been prepared on the accrual basis of 
accounting and reflect the following significant accounting policies: 

Net Asset Classification 

The Museum reports information regarding its financial position and activities according to 
three classes of net assets: unrestricted, temporarily restricted and permanently restricted. 

* Unrestricted net assets are not restricted by donors, or the donor-imposed restrictions 
have expired. The Museum's Board of Trustees has designated a portion of the 
unrestricted net assets for investment in land, building and equipment, long-term 
investment, and its building and renovation program. 

* Temporarily restricted net assets contain donor-imposed restrictions that require the 
Museum to use or expend the assets as specified. The restrictions are satisfied either by 
the passage of time or by action of the Museum. 

* Permanently restricted net assets contain donor-imposed restrictions that stipulate the 
resources be maintained permanently, but permit the Museum to use, or expend, part or 
all of the income derived from the donated assets for either specified or unspecified 
purposes 

Summarized Information 

The financial statements include certain prior-year summarized comparative information in 

total but not by net asset class. Such information does not include sufficient detail to 

constitute a presentation in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles. 

Accordingly, such information should be read in conjunction with the Museum's financial 

statements for the year ended June 30, 1998. from which the summarized information was 

derived. 

Cash and Cash Equivalents 

Cash equivalents are short-term highly liquid investments with original maturities of three 
months or less, except for investments to be applied to specific purposes or included in 
long-term investment strategies. The Museum includes all money market funds as cash 
equivalents, with the exception of those money market funds which are included as 
investments (see Note 3). 

Inventory 

Inventory consists of books, exhibition catalogues, posters, note cards, and other 
merchandise valued at the lower of average cost or market. Inventory consisted of 
$1 ,31 1 ,000 of finished goods and $1 53,000 of work in process at June 30, 1 999. 

Inv

Whitney Museum Annual Report Page 4 of 1 



Equity securities are carried at market value based on the last reported sales price at the 
end of the fiscal year. Fixed income securities are valued by the investment managers 
using pricing services of financial institutions. Purchases and sales of securities are 
reflected on a trade-date basis. Realized gains and losses on sales of securities are 
determined on an average-cost basis. Dividend income is recorded on the ex-dividend 
date and interest income is recorded as earned on an accrual basis. 

Some of the Museum's investments are pooled to facilitate their management. Investment 
income is allocated among the individual components of unrestricted, temporarily 
restricted and permanently restricted net assets based on donor restrictions or the 
absence thereof, using percentage of participation based on their carrying value or market 
value. 

The Museum manages its investment portfolio on a total return basis. To preserve the 
investments' long-term value, the Museum makes available to be spent each year 5% of 
the investment portfolio's average market value for the preceding three years ending 
December 31 , excluding investment and custodial fees (the "spending rate"). 

Limited partnerships representing alternative investments in both publicly traded securities 
and less liquid securities, some of which are valued by the general partners, are carried in 
the aggregate at fair value, where fair value represents the Museum's share in the net 
assets of these limited partnerships at the end of the Museum's fiscal year. Certain of the 
partnerships enter into contractual commitments including futures and option contracts and 
other derivative financial instruments. These contracts are valued at the last reported sales 
price and involve elements of market risk in excess of the amounts recognized on the 
partnership statement of financial condition. Risks arise from the potential changes in 
securities values and interest rates The Museum records its share of the net income or 
loss for the accounting period on an equity basis in proportion to its participating 
percentage in each partnership. 

Art Collection 

The Museum has an extensive collection of art, including paintings, sculpture, 
photographs, drawings, prints, and films and videos. The collection is maintained under 
the care of the Collections Department staff and is held for research, education, and public 
exhibition in furtherance of public service, rather than for financial gain. As a matter of 
policy, proceeds from the sale of collection items are used to acquire other items for the 
collection. The Museum does not include either the cost or the value of its collection on the 
Balance Sheet, nor does it recognize gifts of collection items as revenues in the Statement 
of Activities. Since items acquired for the collection by purchase are not capitalized, the 
cost of those acquisitions is reported as decreases in net assets in the Statement of 
Activities. 

Defi 

Membership dues for individual and corporate membership categories are recognized in 
the applicable year that their subscription commences. 

Mea

Whitney Museum Annual Report Page 5 of 10 



The Museum includes in its measure of operations all revenues and expenses that are an 
integral part of its programs and supporting activities. The measure of operations includes 
investment income equal to a 5% spending rate, interest earned from short-term 
investments on cash held for working capital, and, beginning in fiscal 1999, the loss from 
real estate activities. It excludes additions to temporarily and permanently restricted net 
assets, investment return in excess of the 5% spending rate, and changes in net assets 
relating to collection items. 

Contributions 

The Museum records as revenue, cash and unconditional promises to give in the period 
received. Conditional contributions are recognized as revenue when the conditions on 
which they depend have been substantially met. Unconditional contributions are recorded 
at the net present value of the amounts expected to be collected. 

The Museum records unconditional contributions as temporarily restricted revenue if they 
are received with donor stipulations that limit their use either through purpose or time 
restrictions. When donor restrictions expire, that is, when a purpose restriction is fulfilled or 
a time restriction ends, temporarily restricted net assets are reclassified to unrestricted net 
assets and reported in the Statement of Activities as net assets released from restrictions. 

The Museum has volunteers who provide administrative support to various Museum 
programs Such contributed services do not meet the criteria for recognition of contributed 
services contained in generally accepted accounting principles and, accordingly, are not 
reflected in the accompanying financial statements. 

Functional Allocation ol I xpen 

The costs of providing Museum programs and other activities have been presented in the 
accompanying Statement of Activities. Management and general expenses include 
executive and financial administration, human resources, and information services. 
Fundraising activities of the Museum include salaries and employee benefits of program 
staff who develop proposals for fundraising, solicit contributions for those needs and for 
endowment purposes from individuals, corporations, government agencies, and 
foundations; and conduct special fundraising events Fundraising costs are expensed as 
incurred 

Advertising and public relations costs are generally expensed when incurred, except when 
related to the Museum's exhibition program, for which the costs are recognized on a 
straight-line basis over the scheduled exhibition period. In fiscal 1999, the Museum 
incurred advertising and public relations expenses of $1,356,000 excluding Museum labor 
and overhead. 

Depreciation and Amortization 

Land, building, and equipment are stated at cost and expenditures in excess of $2,500 are 
capitalized. The Museum's building, capital improvements, furniture and equipment are 
being depreciated on a straight-line basis over their estimated useful lives (building-fifty 
years; capital improvements, furniture and equipment-three to fifteen years or the 
remaining useful life of the building). Leasehold improvements are amortized on a straight- 
line basis over the shorter of the lives of the assets or the terms of the leases. 
Depreciation and amortization costs are allocated among the programs and supporting 
services benefited. The Museum has adopted a policy of implying a time restriction that 



hup: www.uhitnc formation/annual report/stml ind acct.html 4/1m>j 



Whitney Museum | Annual Report 



Page 6 of 10 



expires over the useful life of long-lived assets acquired or constructed with contributions 
restricted for that purpose and therefore releases amounts from temporarily restricted net 
assets equal to the depreciation expense of fixed assets built or acquired with temporarily 
restricted contributions. 

Estimates 

The preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting 
principles requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the 
reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities 
at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and 
expenses during the reporting period. The more significant estimates made relate to the 
valuation of accounts receivable and contributions receivable, valuation of investments, 
deferred exhibition costs, and actuarial assumptions used in the calculation of pension 
benefits. Actual results could differ from those estimates. 

Concentrations of Credit Risk 

Financial instruments which potentially subject the Museum to concentrations of credit risk, 
as defined by Statement of Financial Accounting Standards No. 105, consist principally of 
cash and cash equivalents and investments in fixed income funds, equity funds, and 
limited partnerships. The Museum maintains its cash and cash equivalents in various bank 
deposit accounts which, at times, may exceed federally insured limits. The Museum's cash 
investments are placed with high credit quality financial institutions. The Museum has not 
experienced any losses in such accounts. 

Reclassifications 

Certain amounts reported for fiscal 1998 have been reclassified to conform with the fiscal 

1999 presentation. 

2. Tax Status 

The Museum is exempt from federal income taxes under Section 501(c)(3) of the U.S. 
Internal Revenue Code and has been classified as an organization which is not a private 
foundation under Section 509(a). 

3. Investments

The Museum has a defined benefit pension plan (the "Plan") covering substantially all of 
its employees. The benefits are computed on the basis of years of credited service and the 
average compensation, as defined, in the Plan. The normal monthly retirement benefit is 
the greater of (1) 1% of average monthly earnings plus .65% of average monthly earnings 
in excess of "covered compensation" multiplied by years of credited service (up to a 
maximum of 30 years) and (2) the annuity value of the following account: the lump-sum 
value of a participant's accrued benefit as of June 30, 1991, plus 3% of yearly earnings for 
each year of credited service after June 30, 1991 , plus monthly interest earned on a 
participant's account beginning July 31 , 1 991 . The Museum's funding policy is to contribute 
annually the minimum amount based upon the related actuarial determinations. 
Contributions are intended to provide not only for benefits attributed to service to date but 
also for those expected to be earned in the future. Pension costs are accounted for on the 
basis of the projected unit credit method. 

The following table sets forth the Plan's funded status at June 30, 1999. The latest 
actuarial valuation was conducted as of July 1 , 1 998. Actuarial present value of benefit 
obligations is as follows: 

A ccumulated benefit obligation $ 2,781,000 

Plan assets $ 2,041,000 

Projected benefit obligation 2,604,000 

Projected benefit obligation in excess of plan assets 563,000 

Unrecognized net asset 200,000 

Unrecognized net gain (46,000) 

Unrecognized prior-service cost (167,000) 

Net pension liability, included in accrued expenses 
in the Balance Sheet $ 550,000 

Net pension cost for fiscal 1999 included the following components: 
Service cost - benefits earned during the period % 182,000 

Interest cost on projected benefit obligation 164,000 

Actual return on plan assets (149,000) 

Met amortization and deferral (10,000) 

Net periodic pension cost $ 187,000 



The significant actuarial assumptions used in the determination of actuarial present value 
of the projected benefit obligation were: 

Discount rate 7.00% 

Increase in rate of compensation 4.00% 

Expected long-term rate of return on plan assets 8.00% 

8. Loan P,! . 

During fiscal 1999, the Museum secured a $10,000,000 line of credit with a bank, and as 
of June 30, 1999, had borrowed $1,800,000, at variable interest rates of 0.65% above the 
three-month LIBOR rate. Under the terms of the agreement, the Museum may withdraw 
funds as needed, with repayment due on demand by the bank. The Museum used these 
funds for interim financing for the construction of the Museum's facilities. Certain 
investments have been pledged as collateral for this loan, equal to the face value of the 
loan at June 30, 1999.

FISCAL YEARS 1994-99 FROM THE CHIEF FINANCIAL OFFICER 

The five years ending June 30, 1999, represent a time of change for the Whitney 
Museum of American Art, resulting in a significant transition in the Whitney's financial 
profile. The change centered on a $50 million capital campaign and the resultant 
creation of the Leonard & Evelyn Lauder Galleries on the fifth floor of the Marcel 
Breuer building, which opened in spring of 1998 These galleries as well as our 
second-floor gallery, will allow us to display our Permanent Collection at all times. The 
campaign also focused on the acquisition and renovation of brownstones on 74th 
Street, which house our administrative offices. The campaign raised nearly $32 million 
for construction of our fifth-floor Permanent Collection galleries, approximately $12.7 
million for our endowment, and approximately $5.3 million for operations. 

The creation of space to display our Permanent Collection allows works by 
blockbuster artists such as Edward Hopper, Jasper Johns, Georgia O'Keeffe, and 
Alexander Calder to be viewed at all times We expect these works, along with an 
active temporary exhibition schedule to drive Museum attendance, admission income, 
and retail activity Highlights of past exhibitions include: the 1995 Biennial, an Edward 
Hopper and an Edward Kienholz exhibition in 1996; Nan Goldin and New York Dada 
in 1997, 1998 was extremely strong with Keith Hanng, Richard Diebenkorn, Andy 
Warhol and Bill Viola exhibitions as well as the opening of the fifth floor; and 1999 
included Andrew Wyeth, Mark Rothko, and the beginning of Part I, 1900-1950, of The 
American Century Art & Culture 1900-2000 

As the following table shows, our endowment has increased over the past five years 
by nearly $17 million as a result of the campaign and positive investment results. This 
has resulted in operating income from the endowment to double to a 1999 high of 
$15 million To preserve the endowment's value, our policy is to spend only 5% of the 
portfolio's average market value from the preceding three years ending December 31, 
excluding investment and custodial fees The endowment is managed by the 
Museum's Investment Committee who deems an appropriate policy of investments to 
be 25% in U S fixed income assets 10% in hedged equities, and 65% in equities. 

The capital campaign coupled with a strong exhibition schedule has resulted in 
increased membership and membership income Based on the strength of The 
American Century we find ourselves today at over 13,000 members, the highest in 
the Museum's history During the years 1995 to 1999, membership dues have grown 
$905,000 to income of $2,454,000, representing growth of more than 58% 

Benefit income has more than tripled over the past five years More tables at a higher 
price are being sold for both the Whitney Gala and American Art Award. Income in 
1999 of almost $2 9 million, compared with income of $928,000, represents an 
increase of almost $2 million 

The completion of our building project, coupled with an ambitious exhibition schedule, 
presents a new financial opportunity for the Whitney Despite growth mentioned 
above we continue to incur annual deficits fueled by the growing costs of mounting

fortunate to have received enormous sponsorship for The American Century from Intel 
Corporation, however we fear that corporate support for complete sponsorship of 
exhibitions may be waning. 

The need for increased endowment is continually in our minds, especially when 
compared to other museums of a smaller size. We are blessed with a committed and 
generous Board of Trustees who support management as we try to increase revenue 
from existing sources and expand the Museum's visibility.
